Israel Returns To U.S. Combat Plane Project

Posted on Monday, November 07 at 13:57 by jensonj
Asked about Israel's commitments to Washington, Mofaz affirmed that "We will meet them. Some of them are linked to the tightening of supervision on the technological-defense export and some to the reorganization of the different systems." The F-35 is slated to replace the F-16 fighter jet, which served as the primary combat airplane in the Israeli air force during the past 25 years. The U.S.-based Lockheed Martin Corporation develops the F-35 in collaboration with Britain, Canada, Norway, Denmark, Turkey, Holland, Italy and Australia. The U.S. banned Israel's participation in the project as a result of Israel's security deals with China.
